We do have a generator that the kill switch is bad on so there is a grounded wire that you touch to the spark plug to kill the ignition. Of course the insulation is all cracked and there is about a 75% chance it's going to bite you so I find new and creative ways to kill the spark if I don't have an insulated screwdriver.

Bungee Cords
Nylon Rope (just for tying stuff down in the bed if need be, or general purpose)
A couple caribiners (sp?)

I also have the 4 adjustable tie-down things in there (since I don't want people to steal them) and the tools the car came with.

I had duct tape in the cart but I took it out before checking out because I can get it cheaper at Walmart or something.

I'm going to Harbor Freight tomorrow to buy some ratchetable tie-downs and a torque wrench.

Still need to work on a first-aid kit and storage.
I just went and bought some stackable plastic drawers for the backseat of my pickup. Works great.

as far as shit you need, buy the following:
a receiver hitch and 2" ball and stow that under your seat.
A good sturdy pair of gloves.
A can of penetrating oil
A good pair of small channel lock pliers.
At least a Phillips and flat screwdriver.
Metric wrench set
Crescent wrench.
1 lb ball peen hammer
Ratchet straps
Tow rope
Jumper cables (good ones)
Portable 12v air compressor (can be cheap)

There is a magnitude of other hand tools you should buy but I wouldn't outfit. Pickup with any less.
